I think I found the problem, and it is not the firewall.
When the client send an advertisement to find a Ring server, it sends in
the broadcast packet the URL of its own DRb service, like
"druby://machine1:xxx". Now, the Rinda server on the Windows machine was
able to find an IP for the name machine1 (through some other mean than
DNS), but the Linux box didn't (because the DNS server is hardly in sync
with the Windows stuff) and couldn't respond.
Entering the proper DNS information, et voila, they find each other.
If only I could convince the local Windows sysadmin to do something
about this DNS issue, it would be great...
Thanks for your time,

I just knew that in similar cases where I had one machine in a group
that wouldn't communicate, it was almost always a firewall problem.
